Hope you enjoy learning about some of the

    “Hidden Treasures” of  the Irish hosteling world!

        Included on this web site will be 120 hostels in Ireland that offer an extremely unique type of accommodation.  They were chosen for such aspects as their incredible location, welcoming atmosphere, diversified offerings, type of structure, history, etc.  The hostels that were already highlighted were profiled during the summers of 2007, 2008, and 2009.  We are in the process of

adding additional profiles of many hostels that we visited during the summer

of 2011.

        This website is a family endeavor and is not supported or sponsored by any business or organization.

        Several visitors to this site have asked for suggestions on places that are worthwhile to include in a trip to Ireland and Northern Ireland.  New to this site this year is a section of “Unique Irish Experiences” - places or opportunities that our family felt offered a great deal to make the trip quite special.  We are happy to share some of the highlights of our trips.
